Hey guys,

I installed 13.04 and my touchpad is crap. It only allows one finger click and use. I have no option in the settings for "two-finger" scroll. I posted to reddit looking for help to no avail. I feel like I've tried everything. I am also a beginner and have little experience with ubuntu and I am still learning the jargon.

I've tried these threads:


^these did not work

I think an issue may be with this from this thread:


Step 2: update synaptics driver
This step is probably unnecessary but is only to ensure you have the latest driver.


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-synaptics

this is the response from terminal: 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 25 not upgraded.

Synaptics is not updating.

When I try to open "Synaptics" it gives me an error saying that no touchpad is found. In the mouse settings it is read as PS/2 Elantech Touchpad.

I have no idea what to do!
